Gold in colour with a medium+ intensity on the nose.

Positives: Medium toasted oak with bananas flambé, guava, tangerine, lemon candy & pineapple. Full body with medium acid, medium+ length & the alcohol is well integrated.

Negatives: Too much bananas flambé.

Interesting Point: This series is consistent year to year. I was able to get it on sale at the LCBO for $14.05.

Drink on its own now or pair it with BBQ herb & garlic scampi.

Tasted: 18 May 12

Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 8.5+/10, Total: 17.5/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 4
